PPP (Pearly Penile Papule) Removal

PPP (Pearly Penile Papules) are small dome shaped bumps around the corona of the penis caused by glandular overgrowth. They are non-sexually transmitted and have nothing to do with personal hygiene. PPP is common in males in their 20’s and 30’s, and more common on uncircumcised penises. These bumps are harmless but can cause low self esteem. The pearly penile papules can be removed via a simple outpatient procedure called C02 laser treatment. A C02 laser is used to vaporize the papules resulting in a smoother appearance. This procedure can take as little as a few minutes to perform, and heals within just a few days.
